For years BTS have said their dream is to be Grammy-nominated. And they've finally achieved it.
Since their debut in 2013, the seven-member band has been at the forefront of South Korean pop music, recently notching their first ever Number One hit single on the Billboard charts in the United States with "Dynamite".
The first-time nominees shared on Twitter their livestreamed reactions to their 2021 Grammy nomination in the best pop group performance field.
In the video, four of the seven members - the leader RM, singers Jimin, Jungkook and V - spring up from a sofa, clap and cheer in joy as the nomination for their hit single "Dynamite" is announced.
"Above all, ARMYs are the ones who helped this miracle come true - of us getting the Grammy nomination. Thank you always," BTS said on Twitter, addressing the group's fan base, known as ARMY, an acronym for Adorable Representative MC for Youth.
Hashtags "GrammyNominatedBTS” and "Heading to Grammy” were trending on South Korean Twitter.
Thousands of fans retweeted the reaction clips and congratulated the group on their accomplishments: "So proud of you guys," a Twitter user commented.
"Congratulations! You made it! You deserve it!" wrote another user.
The nod comes after BTS released their latest album "BE" last week.
BTS will perform live in South Korea on Dec. 31, their first concert since cancelling a world tour in April because of the coronavirus pandemic.
